Oda Jaune was born in Sofia, Bulgaria. She studied in the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in the class of Jörg Im- mendorff, who she later married. Her art focuses on the biomorphic, the collaged, the abnormal, which ensure that her work continually evades the viewers grasp. Her work plays with the themes of ambivalence, attraction and withdrawal. Internal organs and emotional states blend together in imaginative, unreal, and occasionally gruesome ways, resulting in disturbing yet poetic works. Deformities, masks, and phallic-like growths distort the subject being portrayed and elude the viewers search for clarification. Her high-profile and controversial marriage thrust Oda into the public eye.
